Eduardo Cemano (United States, 1972)
This wild adventurous odyssey and fairy tale tells the story of Professor Wurtsis, who is obsessed with cross breeding animals of different species. Research has brought him to a tropical island where he experiences the LSD-like sensation of the Fongaluli leaf and witnesses the transformation of a lobster into a gorgeous and eager young woman, then back again. Professor and lobster set out in search of the Island of Fongaluli, and their adventure leads to encounters with all manners of strange things including the evil Fongawitch and her orgy-practicing disciples.

Feature Program: TRANSCENDENT BODIES
Barbara Carellas (United States, 2018)
Transcendent Bodies follows two transpeople—one gender queer person and one trans woman—through the rediscovery of their desires, arousal and orgasm during an Erotic Awakening massage. The primary intention of this edu-documentary is to help transpeople and their partners negotiate the tricky terrain of changing bodies, emotions and identities that accompany life and sex outside the gender binary. Coincidentally, it presents a model of sexual and sensual relating that can apply to everyone.
